Last week Baby A had a really large burp, and I laughed and called him a purple worm. E wanted to know what the joke was, so I started telling her about NetHack. She was enthralled by everything I told her, especially after I mentioned that you started with a pet, which often was a dog. (Lately she has been obsessed with doggies, mostly along the lines of saying wistfully, "I wish we had a doggie!")

So for the last three evenings D has been playing NetHack with E (maybe fifteen minutes each evening), using the Absurd Tileset (which apparently is no longer really extant? Anyway). E loves it! She especially, of course, loves the pet doggie. But she is also really excited about killing monsters and picking up gold and the different kinds of traps in the Mines!

Mostly I am posting this because last night, when they had their fifteen-minute NetHack time, E said happily, "Maybe tonight I will finish the game!"

D was all, "Umm... probably not tonight."

(It probably took both of us a... couple of months? playing a couple of hours a day, to ascend in NetHack.)
